A Nigerian lady who turned up with others to get her PVC, however deceived everyone present as she turned up with a fake pregnancy to get attended to before others.
According to her, for over 4 days she struggled to get attended to but to no avail. However the fake pregnancy gave her an easy pass. Here is what she wrote below;
I’ve been to the INEC PVC center for the past 4 days and I wasn’t attended to, truth is it is not just me but millions of Nigerians go through the same.
I had to disguise as a pregnant woman and in less than 10hours I got my PVC. Which way #naija ???
Ensure you do anything you can to get your PVC and vote in the right candidate in the year 2019

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission which registered 23 new political parties, extended the registration for Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) for two weeks. The closing date for registration was initially fixed for August 17, 2018.
The commission announced that it has registered over 12 million voters since it began the exercise in April 2017. The commission said:
The Commission has decided to extend the CVR to 31st August 2018. The exercise will continue in all the designated registration centres every day, including weekends, but excluding public holidays, between 9am and 5pm.
Please note: If you have registered, collection of your PVC will continue until “close to the general elections,” according to INEC.
The commission had sent letters of invitation to the affected chairmen of the new parties to pick their certificates of registration from the commission. The development presents huge logistical challenge for the electoral umpire, with the ballot paper set to be expanded to accommodate more parties. Among the newly political parties registered by INEC, were African Action Congress, AAC; Alliance for a United Nigeria, AUN; Alliance National Party, ANP; Allied Peoples’ Movement, APM, among others.
